Click here to view the manual to this game.

Armor Ambush was released by M-Network, a brand of Mattel, in 1982. Based off the 1979 Intellivision game Armor Battle, it is a multiplayer gamew hich pits two players against each other in a contest to see which player could eliminate their opponent's stock of tanks first.

(The following description courtesy of MobyGames via a CC license.)

Armor Ambush (aka Armor Battle) is a two player game, where each player is in command of two tanks (one at a time), and they must try to destroy each other.

The battlefields constantly change, so no battle is ever the same. Tanks move at average speed on grass, fast on roads, slow through trees, and slowest through water.

Tanks will explode after three direct hits. The Harder game mode adds ricochet shots.

Subject: Far Superior to Combat, but no A.I. to play alone...
This game was far superior to Combat from Atari (usually the game that was included for 'free' with the 2600 Console at time of purchase). However, much like Combat and all other games that needed multiple player to play - the lack of A.I. of any sort meant that the game was not played a lot if there was only one person at the console.
